What the Media Says About Us
Women-Only Tours: Finding Freedom and Forming Friendships
While some people take a vacation just to relax, for others travel is a process of exploration and discovery — an opportunity to lose one’s self in another culture and then to find one’s self again, renewed, grounded, wiser and more worldly. Many women are finding they can best do this in the company of other women.
What Makes a Great Women-Only Tour
Over the years, Joan Soriano had visited countries around the world with her husband. But when a disability left him unable to travel, he encouraged her to continue. Soriano began researching women-only tours, and in 2008 visited Italy with Sights and Soul Travel. “With a women-only tour, you don’t feel like you’re infringing on couples that may be on the trip,” says Soriano, who lives in Bremerton, Washington.
